Young Condo Buyers Taking the Next Step in Luxury

by : Tracey Markow

For several years, young renters have been drawn to New Jersey's Gold Coast because of the unique atmosphere, dynamic nightlife, and easy access to Manhattan. Today, many of these renters blossomed into prospective buyers, seeking the same attributes when buying a new home.? Many are finding what they're looking for at The Siena, a collection of 101 luxury condos in Montclair, NJ.

The Siena, Pinnacle Downtown's luxury condominium community, has become a popular destination for the young buyer as Montclair offers arts, music, boutiques, restaurants, and nightlife - at a lower price than those being offered at the communities along the Hudson River.?

'The City of Montclair, with its vibrant, thriving and cultured downtown, has established itself as one of New Jersey's most desirable places to live,' said Mary Boorman, Pinnacle's senior vice president for development, sales and marketing. 'Many former residents of Gold Coast cities such as Hoboken and Jersey City are relocating to The Siena at Montclair to take advantage of a modern urban village that boasts a short commute to New York City.'

Buyers at The Siena at Montclair enjoy all of the extras and amenities that define high-end urban living in the Gold Coast cities. In turn, sales at The Siena continue to be robust, with over 70 percent of the homes already sold and over 60 residents moved in.

Siena's Tuscan-influenced community offers one-, two- and three-bedroom luxury condominium homes and 40,000 square feet of boutique retail space on the street level. Starbucks and New York Sports Club have already opened in the Siena village and soon to follow are a Dry Cleaning Station and Woodhouse Spa.

All of the homes include features such as hardwood floors, granite countertops, European cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and ceramic stone bathroom floors - usually considered upgrades at many other communities. Each home comes with private garage parking located underground. The lobby continues the community's Tuscan theme, complete with granite floors, custom carpet inserts lining the hallways, granite and marble paneling along the concierge desk and a wall of water flowing over the Siena logo.

Prices for the homes, which range in size from 771 to 2,800 square feet, range from the low $400,000s to $1.3 million.

The Siena is a joint partnership between Pinnacle Downtown, a division of The Pinnacle Companies, and Kohl Partners. Prospective buyers can make appointments to tour the luxury condominiums at the sales center, located at the Siena on the fifth floor. The sales center is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Wednesday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday and Friday and from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday.
